Rite Standard Bobbin


Rite Bobbin

The Rite Standard bobbin is probably the most popular of all fly tying bobbins that we sell. More than likely, that's because it's the model that works for just about any fly pattern you may want to tie.

From small midges to bigger saltwater flies, the Standard bobbin does it all. With a premium-quality ceramic tube, it's also going to be very durable. And of course, it wouldn't be a Rite Bobbin without the one-of-a-kind brass tension adjuster, allowing you to have more control as you tie. This is a must-have for any serious fly tyer.

The only bobbin I'll use

Year after year these bobbins never fail me. Built like a tank, feel great in the hand, and work like a charm.

Robert B.
Rite Bobbin

Being a bit "old school", I was leery of giving up the tension control of a traditional bobbin based on how it feels in the hand. After tying a dozen of flies with the Rite Bobbin, I knew I had nothing to worry about. The operation was smooth, and being able to adjust the tension based on the different materials used was a dream. Sometimes it pays to expand your horizons.

Favorite Fly Tying Bobbin

Great bobbin, easy to adjust thread tension while tying flies.

Lives Up To It's Reputation

I've had problems with other "screw adjustable" bobbins coming loose while using them, or being so sensitive you can't get the tension you want being either too tight or too loose. The Rite Bobbin protects the adjustment screw, so it stays where you put it, and it gives you plenty of adjustment. I am very happy with it and will be getting another soon.

Rite Bobbin For The Win

The Rite Bobbin is the best bobbin I have ever used. The adjustment is smooth and precise. You never have to worry about breaking your thread no matter how fine the thread is. Once the tension is set it stays that way. No need to readjust. I have tied many flies, large to very small for sixty years and have never had a bobbin so comfortable, reliable and easy to use.
